Bathurst Airport

Bathurst Airport (IATA: BHS, ICAO: YBTH) is an airport serving Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

Located in the central tablelands, Bathurst Airport is serviced by only one airline, Rex. Numerous flying schools operate at the aerodrome. The airport is used very frequently by trainee pilots during their navigation training. There are no landing charges for aircraft under 2000kg thus being a popular option as a destination for many pilots, mostly trainee pilots from Bankstown and Camden Airport in the Sydney Basin.

The airport has two runways: one sealed and one brown gravel. The sealed runway has lighting facilities which are pilot-activated.

The airport is managed by Bathurst Regional Council.

Airlines and destinations

Regional Express airlines to Sydney. The airline is based in Wagga Wagga.

Virgin Blue

Bathurst was one of the 20 destinations looked at by Virgin Blue for services to Sydney using its new Embraer aircraft. As of November 2008, Virgin Blue has not announced the launch of services to Bathurst, although the likelihood of the airline servicing the city is relatively low due to low traffic and low demand on the route.
